Newsletter 16 June 2016

When will the rain stop and the fog lift? It is a shame that the ongoing bad weather led to us postponing Sports Day this week but we will attempt to host it next week instead.

The weather didn’t prevent us holding our ‘open classrooms’ which saw a good number of parents and carers visiting school and finding out about the children’s learning. It was a good opportunity to celebrate a year of learning.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the remaining end of term events. Perhaps the weather will be kinder?!

Staffing update

After a number of years supporting pupils at both Coldingham and Cockburnspath primary schools, Mrs McGregor has decided, for personal reasons, to reduce her working days. This means she will no longer work at our schools come August. We will miss her supports and insights but wish her well for the future. A replacement Learning Support teacher will be in post for the start of the new term.

Parent Survey

We would be grateful if you could take the time to complete the online survey that was sent out from the PFA email this week. It is important that we know your thoughts and hope you will be able to do so. If you didn’t receive an email or would prefer a paper copy, please contact the school office. Alternatively, visit the school website.

On Tuesday the parents came over to look at their child’s work. We showed them a power point that Ellie and Taisho did about Malawi. We also showed them some maths games on the Manga high and Sumdog websites. We also made number machines to test them on how good they were.

On Thursday we were doing science with Ms Good. This time we made marshmallows bigger by pumping all the air out the bottle and the marshmallows.

On Thursday last week Primary 6s went with their buddies to the Coldingham park to play so we could get to know them more before they come to school. We also got ice lollies!!!
